Police remind residents not to leave valuables in vehicles

Caledon OPP have taken several reports of thefts from vehicles which occurred over night on Nov. 29.

At an unknown time through the night, vehicles on Emily Carr Crescent, De Rose Avenue and Country Stoll Crescent, in Bolton, were entered and items were stolen. In one instance, the window of a vehicle was smashed.

In these incidents, victims lost wallets, cash, purses and other valuable items.

Caledon OPP would like to remind the public that when it comes to thefts from motor vehicles, this can be a crime of opportunity for criminals. A crime of opportunity is an act “that is committed without planning when the perpetrator sees that he/she has the chance to commit the act at that moment and seizes it.”

With that being said, we ask that you take the following precautions to help prevent you from becoming a target.

Always roll up your vehicle’s windows and lock the doors, never leave valuable items or merchandise in plain view, use your trunk instead or better yet remove all valuable items from your vehicle, if you have a garage, use it and lock both your vehicle and the garage, never leave your vehicle keys in plain view or in an easily accessible area, do not leave your vehicle registration certificate and proof of insurance in your vehicle and always park your vehicle in a well-lit area.

If you have any information or video surveillance footage in relation these thefts, please call the Caledon OPP Detachment Community Street Crime Unit at (905) 584-2241 or 1-888-310-1122.
